Sophos rises on Sunday Times PricewaterhouseCoopers Profit Track 100

Sophos Press Release

Sophos has been named one of Britain's top 100 unquoted companies for the second year running in the annual Sunday Times PricewaterhouseCoopers Profit Track 100 league table.

Sophos was applauded for driving up profits by 50% a year from £2.9m in 1999 to £9.7m in 2002. Sophos's position on the league table rose to 48th position from 56th the previous year.

About the league table

The PricewaterhouseCoopers Profit Track 100 is independently compiled by research company Fast Track, and published in The Sunday Times. In addition to title sponsor PricewaterhouseCoopers, the survey is co-sponsored by Bank of Scotland Corporate Banking, Oracle and UBS Private Banking.

League table criteria

Companies are ranked according to their annual growth rate in profits over the three years to their latest financial year (either 1998-2001 or 1999-2002). Profits are defined as operating profits with directors' remuneration added back in.

Companies had to be registered in the UK, unquoted and ultimate holding companies, not subsidiaries. Pure property developers and financial trading companies were excluded because of their irregular trading patterns.
